A Pocket History of 20th-century Chinese ArtBook - 2010
A landmark text for casual readers and scholars alike, this book is a comprehensive account of Chinese art. In this volume, Lü Peng, China's foremost art expert traces the accelerated development of Chinese art in the last century, tackling its emergence not only in mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, but also in such important expatriate centres as Paris and Tokyo. As the Chinese economic age dawns, the art that has emerged over the course of the nation's often turbulent past reveals a complex evolution with broad cultural implications.
